CB - TB
Week 8 Outlook
Bucs CB Carlton Davis (abdomen) is questionable for Week 6 against the Packers.
Davis is a true game-time decision after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. His absence would be a big boost for Davante Adams, though the Packers' No. 1 wideout is a top-five play either way.
Rookie cornerback Carlton Davis, who dressed but did not play in Saturday's game because of an undisclosed injury, returned to practice Monday. All that can be said about the injury as he was seen with his ankle wrapped at one point Saturday when Tampa Bay was playing Tennessee in their second preseason contest.
Carlton Davis should be on IDP owners radars, he has had a solid camp and played well in the first preseason game. He is in the thick of things along with M.J. Stewart and Vernon Hargreaves for playing time with veteran starting cornerback Brent Grimes.
Carlton Davis had five tackles and two pass breakups in his NFL debut and was reportedly impressive in the Tampa Bay versus Miami preseason game.
With Vernon Hargreaves (groin) struggling with early injuries and not exactly living up to his first-round draft status. Davis is an interesting prospect for IDP owners needing to insert cornerbacks into their lineups. His progress should be monitored.
The Buccaneers have selected Auburn CB Carlton Davis with the 63rd overall pick.
With an aging Brent Grimes on one side and an under-whelming Vernon Hargreaves on the other, the Buccaneers are bringing in Davis, an excellent press corner. Expect Davis to immediately push Hargreaves for the starting spot on the outside, likely sending the former first-round pick into the nickel role.
